Reporting advice please
Hi I am rewriting an ms access application for with sql server backend. My question is what reporting method can I use in place of access reports in visual studio? I keep hearing several terms like sql serve reporting service, report builder, visual studio reporting control and crystal reports and but I can't figure out which one to use to match the functionality of access reports. I would appreciate if someone could please provide some pointers in this regards. I hear reporting services can import access reports, which is a bonus but I don't know what else it could do or if it matches access report in features. Many Thanks Regards

Hi Jeff What I mean is if I can do it in Access report I would like it in the new platform too so the rewritten server app retains the same reporting functionality as the ms access app it is replacing. Sorry, hard to be more specific. There are quiet a number of access reports in the existing app and they use pretty much all features of access reports. Thanks Regards
